Harmonically rich Fuzz with great definition and texture. Inspired by Algal Bloom v1 by Fuzzhugger FX.
From the very first moment you try this fuzz, you will be blown out by the richness of its screaming harmonics and its chord-friendly definition. Yet, you will keep on yourself amusing by the versatility of this little board as it shows its capability from delivering a wide range of tones from mellow to gritty overdriven tones to heavy thick, saturated fuzz, keeping always sparkling harmonics and pristine note definition!
To clarify, this board is inspired by the first version of the Algal Bloom by Fuzzhugger fx, but after trying this machine, we can sure that realizing a version inspired on v2 featuring some extra features is a matter of time!
Meanwhile, you can take a look at its doomy bass-friendly Doom Boom that shares quite in common with the Seaweed.
This circuit has been verified with both 2n5088 and 2n5089, but you can socket and try some other alternatives as mpsa18 and share your results with our pedal builder community!
